IOA Finance Committee

About this Committee & Their Mission

The IOA Finance Committee institutes the necessary financial strategies, processes, and controls to meet all IOA goals and objectives.

The IOA Finance Committee (FC) is seeking interested members to serve as a member of the Finance Committee. If you have any experience or interest in budget management, investing, or finance, please consider serving on the FC. The FC meets monthly with the primary responsibilities of working with the organization to build annual budgets, reviewing monthly and annual revenues and expenses, working with IOA’s investment advisors to review the IOA investment portfolio and reporting on the financial health of the IOA. It’s fascinating work and an opportunity to assist IOA in understanding and guiding the financial future of our organization.
